A portrait of the incorporated town Monowi and the only inhabitant Elsie Eiler. She is the head of this one woman town, the majoress and the sheriff. Since more than 40 Years she is running the tavern with the coldest beer in town and the best Hamburgers. Monowi is Nebraska's smallest, as it is titled on the souvenir shirts. Although Elsie Eiler is the only resident, she is not lonely.  Farmers, tourists and former inhabitants come to her, getting a coffee or a beer and talking about old times while the town of Monowi is more and more reconquered by nature.
